First up are the Tempest Blazers. Inside the box you’ll find a sack of plastic horses and a tray full of gun mages.
Here are all the horses.
Here are the Gun Mages.
And here’s a close-up of the unit leader.
Moving on, we have the new box of plastic Storm Blades. These new plastics will save Cygnar players almost $30. The cost of the old metal unit box, plus the three weapon attachments which were sold separately came to roughly $79. Now you can get it all nine models for a nice even $50. And yes, the weapon attachments are totally worth owning.
Here are all the bits. The lack of instructions is a little daunting, but most of the pieces can be easily dry-fit together with the little pegs they all have. I suspect it won’t take veteran modellers too long to figure out where everything goes.
And here’s a close-up. I’m really pleased with the level of detail here. The rivets on the armor are nice and sharp. Unfortunately there are still a lot of mold lines.
Here’s a look at all the pieces.
If you’ve been wanting to start a Retribution army here’s your excuse: $79 bucks worth of minis now available in a $50 box. Of course, you will only get a Manticore Heavy Myrmidon with this box, as opposed to the weapons for three different ones if you buy the Heavy Myrmidon kit separately. It’s still a great deal.
Here are all the pieces.
Here’s a close-up. I think that incredibly ornate Skorne armor has made the transition to plastic pretty well.
Alright time to leave plastic behind. Our last three new releases are done the old fashioned way: metal.
